Re: [OT] Look after penguins!

As a Veterinary Surgeon, a past president of the RSPCA, a member of multiple ethics committees and a consultant to the NPWS as well as a member of a NPWS advisory committee, I KNOW it was media sensationalism. While sad, these things are not always avoidable. Well that's an independent point of vie...

Re: [OT] Look after penguins!

Not sure that that is fair! They lose that many a week when the penguins hang themselves in the grass that they were trying to get rid of. Just media sensationalism - again. Another one who has missed the point completely :? Habitat management needs to consider the inhabitants of it. The failure is...

Re: Don't forget your towel

A great man. "When a Brambleweeny57 sub-meson brain is linked to an atomic vector plotter suspended in a nice hot cup of tea, finite amounts of improbability are produced." This is precisely why a hot cup of tea is so effective for many events. This is not to be confused with a good lie down, you n...

Re: Is anyone still here???

Looks like no-one is here anymore... Question of Interest How many cachers didn't go to the Mega Event? Well we didn't go to the Mega Event and stayed home this weekend. We managed to sneak in a Meagre Event today and had over 20 people attend. A nice low key event with some great people with time ...

Hi, my name is Stealth Ninja Penguin. I'm a pan-dimensional being from space that travels through time, space and logic. I appear on this planet in the physical form of a humble penguin as not to create too much of a fuss while I wander around studying humans and their funny ways before they complet...

What are the point of rules if they are not applied fairly or are only applied selectively to some depending on they are?

Re: Team cards cuasing a problem.

I started caching leaving a calling card but quit that after about 20. I could see what could happen if everyone (or at least a lot of people) started doing that. In some of the caches that I've found recently, the majority of the contents have been team cards. Some of these people spend a fair amou...

Re: Snakes, Snakes, Snakes

Mannum quarry on Friday I was having a look for a cache under some big rocks. While I was doing that I was thinking 'gee, I hope I don't see a snake here' and guess what... I did :shock: . The gentle rustle of the grass in the wind was just enough to cover the rustle of the grass by the snake. A nic...

Re: 160 metre rule

My first cache placement was 100m from an existing cache. It was in the botannical gardens in Sydney and was in among mature trees quite separated from the nearby one which was in an open herb display. Not much chance one being found accidently while searching for the other so it was allowed at the...

Re: 160 metre rule

Further to this on how strict the 161 m rule is just between Geocaching.com caches from each other is as follows. A year ago ,we had heard that some caches around Australia were permitted to be placed within 161m of each other.We know a couple of caches we had placed got rejected through the 161m r...
